The hustings will be held at St Anne's Church, 182 St Anne's Hill, Wandsworth, SW18 2RS at 7.30pm on Thursday 14th April.
To reach St Anne’s Church from Putney take the 37 or 337 bus to Wandsworth Town Hall (stop is in Fairfield Street). From there it is a 5-6 minute walk to the Church. Alternatively, it is a 15-minute walk from Wandsworth Town Mainline Station.

St Anne’s is Grade II* listed building designed by Robert Smirke, the architect of the British Museum; it was completed on 29th July 1822. It is fifth of the Waterloo churches, so-called because they were looked upon as national monuments built in thanksgiving for the victory over Napoleon at Waterloo.
